The world seems to have been dancing on my last nerve of late, and I suspect it’s that way for many of you, too. Accounts of serious difficulty sleeping, miscommuncation, trouble buckling down to the task at hand have been everywhere–but it also seems this morning’s retrograde of Mercury (at 4:04 AM PST) may have changed it up for us. The retrograde period may bring some positive reshuffling of energy that we didn’t anticipate–sit back and enjoy it!
I thought I should share this about the ‘big’ aspect right now, which is Juno opp Uranus/ Jupiter T-square Pallas. This promises situations that test our true empowerment in the world, as individuals and within the group. Wisdom and guidance are available, but their use is dependent upon our own resistance to or acceptance of them. Circumstances may tempt us to blame our empowerment options (or lack of them) on fate, others, or our specific disempowerment in the situation, but the truth is that every circumstance will hold empowering choices–we must be both clear-seeing enough and brave enough to take them. Add to this that Juno is now quincunx Neptune/ Chiron and Ceres has moved to within trine of Juno, and we have those tests of empowerment become tests of our connection to reality, our susceptibility to accept deception as truth, and our relationship to authority. This ramps up the difficulty of knowing whether we are responding to what is or to our own delusions, or to another’s misinformation, and could make ingrained negative authority issues responsible for bringing all progress to a halt. The best way to meet this is by keeping ideals in the forefront of conscious thinking, and by remembering we’re now into the Merc retro period–this complex doubles the need for caution and care, with the added idea that perhaps non-response will be the most effective response of all.
